Broadleaved, Mixed & Yew Woodland

Broadleaved, Mixed & Yew Woodland -

The kind of broadleaved, mixed and yew woodland found in any one place is influenced by the geology on which it grows. Ancient woodland is an example of particularly biodiversity-rich broadleaved woodland habitat, defined as land that has had continuous woodland cover since at least 1600.

In Kent, there are 45,217 hectares of broadleaved, mixed and yew woodland (KHS2003) - this is approximately the same size as the European country of Andorra.
